Video: Fighting Wildfires with AI and IBM Systems

In this video, Michele Taufer from the University of Tennessee describes how AI enabled by HPC allows researchers to study wildfire propagation which enhances predictions and mitigation. “One of the projects her team is working on looks at how to integrate aspects of soil moisture with wildfire simulations. HPC today and machine learning/AI enable us to identify those patterns and extract the knowledge. The data are generated, analyzed at the same time, and then the knowledge extracted by the data is re-injected into the simulation. Our POWER9 system that allow us exactly to do that.”
